My Favorite Things

1 Title

Christmas is just around the corner and with it comes some of my favorite things to shop for – gifts for the foodie, baker or entertainer in your life. This year I’ve listed ten of my favorite things that are functional, beautiful and sure to make anyone on your gift list smile.

  1. This is absolutely one of the most used items in my kitchen. While I tend to love the look of rich wood pepper mills they just don’t cut it in the performance department. This pepper mill grinds effortlessly in half the time most mills do and you won’t end up with carpal tunnel.

Honorable Mention: I can’t have a gift list without including the Kitchenaid stand mixer. While they tend to be pricey they are well worth the investment. I have had mine for years and there really is no substitute when making frosting, cookies, bread dough and more. I love the updated glass bowl on this model.
